About the show:
Rowoon of SF9 and Jo Bo Ah, The Tale of The Nine-Tailed fame actress, are streaming on Netflix. The episodes air every Wednesday and Thursday for the international audience on Netflix. The Romanized title Destined With You stands for Irresistible Romance in Hangul (Korean).
Jo Bo-ah as Lee Hong-jo, Rowoon as Jang Shin-yu, Ha Jun as Kwon Jae-Kyung, and Yura as Yoon Na-yeon as Jang Shin-yu’s girlfriend. The drama also features Kim Tae Ri, Lee Bong-ryun, Park Kyung-hye, Lee Pil-mo, Hye-Young Jung, Bong-sik Hyun, Mi-Ram, Park Jung Eon, and Jung Sae Rom.
Destined With You is a story connected by a book—not just a normal book but a mysterious one. Jo Bo Ah plays the role of the protagonist, Lee Hong Jo, while Rowoon plays the leading man’s character, Jang Shin Yu, a cold and successful lawyer. While Jang Shin Yu is cursed to die at a very young age, Lee Hong Jo is the only person who can save him. Will she save him? Are they connected by a tragic past? All these secrets unfold in each episode.
The drama gets interesting as the storyline develops in Episodes 3 and 4. As the leading lady tries her best to save Jang Shin Yu, the leading man still doubts if he will survive or not. Episodes 3 and 4 are filled with humor and funny cheezy lines that make the viewers crack up. To balance that, the upcoming episodes bring forth overwhelming drama.
Episode 7 :
The love triangle deepens and both the men almost get into a brawl as they care about Hong Jo a lot. The stalker on the other hand becomes a threat to her. Rowoon dominates over Jo-Bo-Ah’s performance. The love story after many twists and turns ends with a tragic end to Rowoon. The storyline is a bit more depressing as it feels like every other Rom-Com but Rowoon’s performance and the florist performance bring about a change for a while. The humor is broken and the leading lady’s character development is so-so.
The intriguing part picks up with the 8th episode when the stalker’s act brings the couple together. There is nothing much I can speak about in this episode as everything might end up as, a spoiler. Episode 8 adds to the entertaining part as the viewers get to a spark between the leads. The Office leads the change in plot and everything about it brings the essesnce of art.
